Andrew is the Executive Director of the Quixote Center. In January 2011 he started as a volunteer answering phones, entering data, and soaking up the unique Quixote history while finishing his Masters of Public Policy degree at the University of Maryland, College Park.
Dolly (Dolores) Pomerleau is a Maine native, transplanted in Maryland’s fertile soil. The crops have been abundant. She completed an MA in women’s studies at the George Washington University in the late 70s. In 1976, she co-founded the Quixote Center with Bill Callahan. During the ensuing years, Dolly co-founded the Women’s Ordination Conference, Potters for Peace, the Association for Rights of Catholics in the Church, and others. Her work at the Center has included the whole range of activities and responsibilities necessary to keep a vibrant organization moving forward.
Dolly is a potter and a gardener – you can tell by looking at her hands and fingernails. She is also active in her town’s politics, not always a pretty sight.
Technically retired, Dolly continues to work at the Quixote Center on a part-time basis. She loves the staff, the programs, and the outstanding people she has met through her work. Everyone should have a life as blessed as hers.
Jennifer spent last year volunteering in Gros Morne, Haiti and was asked to accompany Marcel Garçon on his first trip to the States to visit his partners at the Quixote Center. Jennifer was immediately drawn to the center's longstanding, no-frills commitment to social justice. Despite losing Marcel at immigration on this first trip, the QC still accepted Jennifer last fall as the Haiti Reborn intern. She is currently a graduate student in D.C. at the Elliott School of International Affairs, studying gender equality policy and development.
